Biography

My research in geology centers on fossil shark teeth and vertebrae. I conducted field research in south-central Wyoming on reworked Cretaceous shark teeth for my master’s work. More recent research involves the morphology and phylogenetic implications of fossil and recent carcharhiniform shark vertebral centra.

I started teaching at SJC in the fall 2004 as an assistant professor of Geology.
